    Reboot your receiver and see if it solves the issue.

    The solution to your problem is to be announced.

    It causes a program to not record or schedule when using the iPod/iPhone app if your dvr does not have that program actually in the Guide!

    Is it possible your receiver just took an automatic firmware upgrade? Sometimes that clears the guide cache. If that is the case it will repopulate over the next 24hrs. Look at your INFO screen and seen when the last software download happened. It also happens if the receiver had rebooted itself twice over a 45minute or so period.

    If you still see this in 8 hours I would be more concerned.

    Most of my channels are fine, but I have a cluster of channels with the same issue. Fine until Monday 02/14 at 8PM...then 'To Be Announced'. Channels 253 through 264. I'll check them again tomorrow. :)

    I reauthorized the relevant DVR and that fixed it. :)

    I saw this problem this morning, unsure how long I restarted my HR24 to fix it. Tonight I went to my parents ot watch the game. Dad said he had had this problem for the last couple of weeks. I restarted his receiver and the guide data was there immediately after the restart as well.

    Was his an HR24 also? Mine is an HR24-100. The fix is easy...either a reset or a reauthorization hit seems to fix it, but we shouldn't be having to perform such a fix.
